Ti8 finished at last, and she holds to the light
The richly embroidered b.em,
The sleeves and the bosom, so perfectly
In flower, and leaf, and stem.
The stitches gleam over the foldings of snow
Like pearls on the fibres Etrung ;
They wander in lines,and in clusters and rows
The bands and the plaits among.
Her fingers, with tender and reverent tonch,
Have fashioned the robe she holds,
And tears that 6he fain would have kept in
Fall over its dainty folds.
In thought she revisits a spot where to night
The soda of the churchyard press
A coffin that hides, 'neath its mouldering lid,
Another baptismal dress.
Ah f lone is her life, but its wearisome toil
The cry of her heart forbids
She blesses the Love that has taken away
The light frotn those drooping lids.
Temptations and trials lie thick in her path,
And sorrow, and want, und care
Thank God 1 they may never o'ershadow the
So peacefully reeting there.

A BEAR HUNT IN ALASKA.
More than twenty years ago lien Ring
bolt and I shipped on board the North
Star, for a three years' whaling voyage,
lien and I had been brought up boys to
gether ; and the first time we went to sea
it was on tho same eliip, and we never
parted until poor Ben went out on that
long voyage that we have all to take,
sooner or later.
Well, the North Star sailed away, and
in due timo we rounded the Horn, ent-ered
the Pacific and at last reached our fishing
grounds. The season was well along, eo
we had but little time for work, and al
most before we knew it, the long nights
and the cold were upon us. We boro
away for Alaska, where wc wero soon
snugly housed for the long and dreary
winter that was coming over the ice and
snoWj with the 5pecd of a ehip with her
sails all fcf, before a spanking breeze.
Here we lay cooped up for two good
months) with only now and then a run on
shore to pay a visit to tho natives. The
sun bad scarcely shown his face at all,
and only a few moments at a time when
he did. Soon came the continuous night
of the Arctic Circle, a night as light as
day, for the eky was all ablaze with great
flaming swords that seemed to wave to
and fro as you looked upon them. There
were no clouds, and the flames could be
seen flashing far over the snow and ice.
Nothing I ever saw could compare with it.
One day, or rather night, some of the
natives came on board and reported that
a huge white bear had been seen near the
coast, and was now making off over the
ice towards the hills that we could see
sparkling in the light some four or five
miles away ; and every one, from the cap
tain down to the cook, was eager to go in
pursuit of the animal which was described
as being a monster in sie. Of course
all could not go, and as an example to
t' 0 who must bo left behind, the captainJ
remained, and the hrst mate led the par
ty ; among which were Ben and I, thank
ing our stars that we had got a chance to
stretch oit legs ashore. We were not
long in being put on the trail by the na
tive, and we bad not gone a mile from
the ehip when we paw our game shamb
ling alorfg before us some distance ahead,
making its way in no hurry towards the
hills or rather cliffs of ico that stretched
themselves along the horizon. The snow
and ice was so firm that it seemed as
though we were traveling on a marble
floor, and so hard was it, that the bear
hardly left trail enough for us to discern
where it had passed.
It was spcrt for us thus to have free use
of our legs, and with loud shout?, which !
we could not suppress, we hurried on in
hopes of getting near enough to the bear
to send a shot after it before it could reach
the hills, and elude us, But in spite of
all our efforts it reached the . foot of the
cliffs and began to climb the jagged mass
es, while we were still so far distant that
a shot would not have reached it.
Once or twice the bear had turned and
looked towards us, as if scenting pursuit,
and then had gone on again at tho same
pace as before. After climbing a jagged
cliff, as high as a ship's masthead, where
it could obtain a good look-out, the beast
stopped and took a deliberate look at us ;
and though we came hurrying on, showed
no haste to proceed. At last the mate
determined to risk a shot, and bringing
his piece to bear ho sent the bullet flying
in the direction of the monster, which,
rearing on its hind legs and uttering a
fierce growl, showed that the ball had
struck. A shout of triumph broke from
our throats, for we felt suro that the bear
was now in our power, and incapable of
leading us a much longer chase. But in
this we soon found that we were mistaken ;
for with another growl at us, it went on
at an increased pace, and in a few mo
ments was hidden from our "sight amid
the jagged masses of ice,! that, as we
neared the foot of the hill, seemed impos
sible for us to surmount.
Though the way was steep and slippery,
we found that we could secure a foothold
where the bear had goner though it had
the advantage of us as regarded its claws,
lien was in the advancej J next, and the
rest of the party strajsjJing behind j and
after awhile we managed to reach the spot
where the snow was marked by a crimson
streak, giving us a trail that we could not
mistake. Encouraged by this sign, we
gave another fhout and pressed on.
It was hard climbing, and more dan
gerous even than running up to the mast
head with the ship threatening every mo
ment to be tossed on its beam end. There
were no ropes to cling to, and a misstep
would have sent us down like a rocket.
Once I slipped, and had it not been for
lien's hand, held out at the same moment,
I must have gone down and been dashed
to pieces on the solid ice an hundred feet
We got at last to the top of the first
range of cliffs which overhung the plnin
below, and to the spot where the bear had
disappeared from our view. It was no
where to be seen ; but before us was a
narrow field filled with great masses of
ice that had fallen from the hih cliifj
which overhung it in the rear. The crim
son trail led in among these broken frag
mentSj and with another shout, after wc
had taken breath, we pressed on, Ben still
keeping in the advance, and I followed
him close keeping an eye out for danger,
for I expected " every moment that the
monster would spring upon us from be
hind some of the ice-boulders that were
scattered so plentifully arouud.
A call from the mate caused me to
pause until he came up, but lien, eagor to
bo the first, went on alone, and before wo
again moved forward he wan out of sight.
Imager to be with him, I increased my
pace, as did also the mate, but hardly had
we taken a dozen steps when the report
of Ben's pistol startled us, and the echoes
rolled among the clit, followed by a ter
rible howl of savage nige, and a human
cry for aid that was well-nigh drowned
by the roar of the beast, that seemed to
shake tho solid ice upon which we stood.
For a moment that cry fastened me,
as it were, to the ice, without the 'power
of rnolion ; but the ppell was broken by
the mate, as he shouted :
-Ftrward, men, and rescue your com
rade. But be careful,"
The men did not need this to cause
them to press forward as fast as possible,
but it had the effect to awaken me from
the sort of trance into which I had fallen
when the cry for aid had tilled my cars ;
and, with a bound, I sprang forward. A
few step3 revealed to me a sight so terri
ble that for years after it haunted me in
my sleep, and even now it appears a3 viv
idly as ever. Tho space before me was
nearly clear of the great ice-boulders that
were strewed so thickly behind us ; and
the way to the loot of the clifft, that we
were now close upon, descended at such
a sharp angle, that one used to it could
have slid upon his feet down to the very
base, had it not been for a great chasm
that opened near the centre of the field,
and which appeared to run along its whola
length. We could tell nothing of its
depth ; but tho dark line that revealed it
to us fhowed that from its width, it would
be impossible for us to cross it It was
a deep crcvi.ee, that had been opened by
an earthquake, or by 6ome strange move
ment of the great glacier. But we beheld
on the edge of the chasm nearest us a
sight which froze our blood the huge
white monster we had been following sit
ting erect upon its haunches, with poor
Ben lying close to his side, and the snow
about them stained with blood that had
flowed from both their wounds. For a
moment neither the mate nor myself could
hardly think or stir, while the monster
before us uttered a succession of growls
that sounded as deep and threatening as
the howlings of the tempest. For a mo
ment the beast would look at the victim,
stretched so helpless at its feet, and then
glare at us, uttering deep growls continu
ously. The spell that was upon us was soon
broken and the mato slowly brought hts
piece to bear upon the monster, which
suddenly dropped down upon all fours,
and, still growling, seemed to be about to
commence a meal upon poor Ben, who
now, by a motion of hi3 hand, gave us to
understand that he was still alive and
sensible of his terrible danger.
4For heaven's sake, take good aim,
Mr. Jones," I said, as I saw that tho
mate was about to fire. "Aim at its
head, but not too low, or you may hit
There was a loud report, which seemed
to shatter the icy crags about us ; and,
when the smoke cleared away, we saw
the bear standing apparently unharmed.
The bullet had gone wide of its mark.
'Parker, give me your gun," called the
mate to the man behind him. A9 he
reached out his band to take it, the bear
suddenly clasped poor Ben in a fearful
embrace, and, uprearing upon its hind
legs, took a few steps in our direction,
then, quickly turning, sprang high into the
air directly over the fearful chasm, where,
for a moment, both man and brute seemed
suspended, and then came down upon the
other side at the very edge of the abyss.
The bear made a frantic effort to secure
a foothold, but. to our horror, both man
and beast rolled over the brink and disajv
peared in the depths of the horrible chasm,
A cry of horror broko from our lips as
we thus witnessed the terrible fate of our
comrade ; then we made our way down
as best we could, to the edge of the chasm,
and gazed into its fearful depths. All
was gloom, so dense that even the vivid
aurora borealis flashing across tl.o sky
could not penetrate it. We called upon
Ben by name, though we knew that there
was no chance of his being alive ; and the
echoes answered us, as if in mockery.
They were sad hearts that were carried
back to the shin. We left poor lion in
his glacier grave, and when, in the spiing,
we sailed away, it seemed as though we
had left him there alive.
A DRL131 REALIZED.
Som etime during last summer a stran
ger stopped at a farm house, in Parish
township, in this county, and asked per
mission to stay over "night, which was
readily granted by tho hospitable farmer.
A couple of hours afier retiring for tho
night, the stranger was taken "suddenly
and violently ill, and for sever;;! davs was
apparently deranged. On his recovery,
he informed hiahott that during hi.s illness
he had dreamed three niuhts in siiccr..m .
that he had discovered, in a certain ravine
near the house, under a rock, an earthen
crock containing a large amount of silver.
At this the old gentleman expressed sur
prise, and spoke of it as being a vcrv mys
terious dream. Afterward, h-jwever, t !;
were walking together in that section, and
the dream was again adverted to by the
stranger. An examination was at once
proposed by the farmer, to s:ilL-fy their
The rock wa3 soon found an l after
brushing the leaves carefully away it was
removed, and to their utter astonL-hnicnt
there sat a crock full of silver. They tok
it out and conveyed it secretly to 'the
house, and on examination it was found
to contain 400, which they served to
divide equally between them.' The day
after this discovery, as the strn.nr-cr w;fc
about to take his leave, ha complained
to his benefactor of tho inconvenience
of carrying so much filvcr, when an
exchange was proposed, the stranger re
ceiving 2o0 in greenbacks for his share
of the coin, silver then being at a premium

till mine host made another discovery

he had thus been ingeniously swindled out

several months, but it finally leaked out,

Believing, but not Undekstaxijing.
"I will not believe anything but what
I understand," said a self-confident young
man in a hotel one day.
'Nor will I," said another.
Neither will I," chimed in a third.
"Gentlemen," said one well known to
me, who was on a journey, and who sat
close by, "do I understand you correctly,
that you will cot believe anything that
you don't understand ."
"I will not," said one, and so said each
one of the trio.
"Well," said the stranger "in my ride
this morning I saw soma geese in a field
eating grass ; do you believe that ?"'
"Certainly," said the three unbelievers.
"I also saw the pigs eating grass; do
you believe that V
"Of course," said the three.
"And I alsei saw sheep and cowa eating
grass; do you believe that ?"
"Of course," was again replied.
"Well, but the grass which they had
formerly eaten had, by dige.-tion, turned to
feathers on the backs of the geese, to bris
tles on the backs of the swine, to wool on
the sheep, and on the cows it had turned
to hair ; do you believe that, gentlemen ?"
"Certainly," they replied.
"Yes, you believe it," he rejoined, "but
do you understand it V
They were confounded and silent, and
evidently ashamed, as they well might be.
A Curious Love S.-(i;y. A very cu
rious story is told by several of tho ancient
writers respecting Egirvard, a Secretary to
Charlemngnc, and a daughter of that Em
peror. The Secretary fell in love with the.
Princess, who at length allowed him to
visit her. One winter's r iht he stayed
with her very late, and in the meantime a
deep snow had fallen. If he left, his foot
marks would be observed, and yet, to stay
would expose him to danger. At length
the Princess resolved to carry him on her
back to a neighboring house, which she
did. It happened, however, that from
tho window of I113 bedroom tho Emperor
saw the whole affair.
In the assembly of his lords on the fal
lowing day, when Egirvard ar.d his daugh
ter were present, he asked what ought to
be done to the man who compelled a king's
daughter to carry him on her shoulders,
through frost and snow, in tho middle of
a winter's night ? They answered he was
worthy of death. The lovers were alarm
ed, but the Emperor, addressing Egirvard,
said : "Ilad'st thou loved my daughter
thou should'st have come to rne; thou art
worthy of death, but I give thee two lives.
Take thy fair porter in marriage ; fear
God, and lova one another."
